Workin' 9-5, Wanderful

Have you scrapbooked a layout for yourself about your day job? Now is the perfect time to do so! Why not document the place you dedicate so much of your time to? Over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog we are looking for your entries for the theme of "Workin' 9-5"! You have until the end of this month to enter.

For my design (as part of the "Team Slate- Design Team") I created a layout for my Husband using the Wanderful Paper Collection. I found that he has some fun work photos on his cell phone, so I got those printed out to tell his story. I wish I had done another one of these years ago for him and also for myself. It just doesn't always come to mind to take pictures at work or document that day to day detail.

My hubby does a lot of driving for work. The stickers from the complements set worked perfectly because they spell out "Here, There, and Everywhere"... The same answer I get when I ask where he worked that day!

I needed to add a few extra pictures to this layout so I used a flip flap. The "There" sticker made a perfect "tab" to lift the flap with. I put the sticker right on the flap then covered the remaining sticky section with reinforcing cardstock.

So, where do you spend YOUR 9-5 hours? Have you told that story in your scrapbook yet? I can't wait to see how you play along with this challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Ticket to Ride, H2H Challenge with Zoe Papers

"Ticket to Ride" is this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart! This was a great time for me to finally scrap a few photos from a couple years ago... Lawnmower Rides with Daddy!

It's a simple moment, so I wanted to keep the layout clean and simple. I used the NEW (Early Released) Paper Collection from Close To My Heart called "Zoe".  This paper is both cheerful and adorable.

The "One Happy Day" sentiment on the zip strip seemed fitting for my photos. I added a couple accents from the Complements Sticker pack.

This "Me & You" sticker was too cute not to use under this picture!

Needed a little something on the upper portion of the Right Hand page... A couple stars, and pennant, and a quick tie of glacier twine.

You have the rest of the month to play along with the Challenge at Heart 2 Heart. What inspires you to scrapbook when you hear the theme "Ticket To Ride"? Can't wait to see what you create!
